DSPs Week – Elisha Rummels – CDS, Arc/Administrative Building
Elisha has always worked in the care field. She started off her career as a CNA then later transferred her CNA skills and passion for helping others into a lead DSP position. Elisha has been with The Arc for a total of seven years now, and is currently working for CDS in the Administrative Building. Her greatest joys come from working with the individuals. In particular, Elisha loves taking individuals on outings, playing games, and working on puzzles. Lately, she has appreciated the lively game of musical chairs recently started by the individuals.
Elisha wisely adds, “The advice I would give to someone interested in a DSP position is that individuals have so many unique personalities. You need to have patience, have fun, and treat them with respect like everyone else.”
